Best Gaming Headphones-Corsair HS60 Haptic
Finding the right gaming headphones for a reasonable price can take you a lot of time, which is why we are here, and there are also Corsair HS60 gaming headphones. Which left a great impression on us. . This USB headset comes with great Taction technology. Which is responsible for shaking the ear shells, when the built-in speaker units produce deep frequencies. The production of this headset is at a high level. The ear shells are made of solid, and extremely comfortable to the touch, plastic, and they are hung on aluminum brackets and interconnected by an aluminum hoop.
The white camouflage pattern on the live shells looks likable and well “communicates” the gaming nature of this device. The hoop is covered on the outside and inside with artificial leather, and so are the large ear pads. The latter is filled with memory foam and proves to be very comfortable when used for several hours. They cannot be removed and replaced, but they work durable.
The high degree of comfort of the HS60 HAPTIC can also be attributed to the performance of the mentioned ear shell holders, which give the shells certain freedom of movement in several directions, which is why they easily adapt to all shapes and sizes of heads. The outside of the earbuds is covered with a metal mesh, but don’t let that make you think it’s an open type headset – the built-in 50mm speaker units at the back are completely closed.
The metal mesh on the outside of the headphones will make someone think it’s an open headset. But that’s not the case, the speaker drivers are closed. On the outer edge of the left earlobe, we find a wheel to adjust the volume and a button to mute the microphone. The volume wheel can be pressed, allowing us to travel through the sound profiles, which we have configured within the iCUE software.
Sound and Configuration
These profiles are different equalizer configurations. The “FPS Competition” profile has prominent mid and high frequencies, “Movie Theater” emphasizes bass and speech, “Pure Direct” is completely neutral so on. We are free to create and save our equalizer settings.
Holding down the mute button activates and deactivates the microphone monitor function. When it is turned on, the microphone will transmit the sound it picks up in the headphones, without an audible delay. This is a welcome feature for anyone who is not thrilled with the “isolation” of closed headsets, although it should be said that the passive noise blocking of the HS60 HAPTIC is not particularly good, so microphone monitoring is not essential.
The pads are filled with memory foam and covered with artificial leather. The microphone is detachable, and it is made in such a way that it successfully maintains the position in which we bend it. It comes with a sponge, which gives it a more professional look. The pads are filled with memory foam and covered with artificial leather.

The left earpiece also has a connector for the included, detachable microphone, which comes with a protective sponge.
The right handset is equipped with a wheel to regulate the intensity of Taction technology, therefore, the intensity of vibrations will be caused by deep frequencies. It would be desirable to have a button with which we can quickly turn the vibration on and off, because this would allow us to always keep the wheel for its volume in the optimal position, instead of having to look for the setting that suits us best.
We will openly admit that on the eve of testing we were extremely skeptical about this whole Taction story. Who would want his headphones to vibrate? However, after about twenty hours of playing, we concluded that the thing still makes sense. Taction technology is in line with the action on the screen and has great dynamics. When you hear the door close in the distance, the headphones will vibrate subtly, and when a tank rumbles or a grenade falls next to you.
The vibration will be lively and shake you. In single-player games, a higher level of immersion in the action is achieved very effectively. That is exactly what Corsair was aiming for. Taction works best when, using the aforementioned wheel, it is set to approximately 50% strength.
Anything above that in our case was getting awkward. In-network titles, however, we preferred not to use them. Because there the vibration can suppress some important sound information, such as the footsteps of a sneaking enemy. The same goes for music. Taction was more distracting than improving the listening experience.
Acoustically, this headset is audibly adapted to younger audiences and players, and in that sense, it provides very good performance. The bass is accentuated, meaty and powerful. The middle frequencies are somewhat withdrawn. But not so much as to be completely obscured by the rest of the spectrum. And a satisfactory amount of detail is delivered in the upper part of the spectrum. The width of the sound is surprising, although the spatial positioning is only mediocre. It is generally a “colored” but fun sound. Which will surely be to the liking of the target audience.
ICUE software allows us to adjust the equalizer, save profiles, and control microphone volume and microphone monitoring.
The microphone is also very good; it sounds clear, is loud enough, and manages to record a certain level of voice depth. Your friends on the Discord will have no complaints about how you sound to them, and in that sense. The HS60 HAPTIC fully meets expectations.
The Corsair HS60 HAPTIC is a quality gaming headset, with unique and well-implemented vibration technology. That works incomparably better than all similar attempts of its kind – to the point that it manages to improve the gaming experience. At least when it comes to single-player titles.
